I've had this in my inbox for about a week or so, but i've not had proper net access to share with you guys.
This is the link to an interactive map, which shows all the Coal Seam Gas wells, along with 'stories' and 'incidents'. I was pretty shocked to see
the stats of how many wells are actually so close to my town! on the map at the moment it stands at:
NEW SOUTH WALES: 485
AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY: 0
SOUTH AUSTRALIA: 52
WESTERN AUSTRALIA: 0
NORTHERN TERRITORY: 0
Yeah mate, it isnt good. The problem in Queensland is that it may be too late to stop the effects (soil and ground water pollution etc), as you can
see by the sheer numbers of CSG sites in Qld. Lucky the state governments stepped in when they did, or there would be a lot more.
The worst part about a lot of the sites in Qld is the fact they are on prime agricultural land. I think it was Alan Jones i heard on the radio who
said "You cant eat coal, you cant drink gas".
Is GetUp crossing parliamentary allegiances ?
For an (organisation) to support the far left for many years, to now all of a sudden to be swinging to the opposite side of the pendulum, makes me
wonder.. Like rats on a sinking ship? These guys supported the Carbon Tax and any 'green' initiative.
